Fencing alla De Vere

When Edward de Vere did combat with the Knevets and their retainers it would have been with these weapons and in a similar style. The old Medieval long swords and such survived only in field combat and tournament. This is also how the sword battle in *Romeo and Juliet*, almost certainly based upon the Knevet duel, would have been choreographed, as well as the contest in *Hamlet*.
